Hi everyone,

I am just getting back in to carping after a few years layoff (had all my tackle stolen in 2003 which was uninsured). Anyway I am ebaying like mad at the moment to build it all back up and have joined a local syndicate water. No massive fish but it is a local water run by a great group of guys, great social side too.

Anyway thats me,

Cheers

Nick

Hi Guys, sort of new to the forum, was a member years ago and just re-registered as couldn't remember user name etc! Have been away from fishing for the last 5 years or so due to work/family and getting a bit disillusioned with the whole thing.

However taken my son a few times pleasure fishing recently and got the bug back!!

Good evening,

My name is Peter, I live near Rotterdam and I have been chasing carp for about 25 years now.In Holland carp fishing is becoming more and more popular and therefore it is very busy on most of the smaller lakes and canals. For that reason,I decided to try and catch carp on the bigger rivers in Holland like Hollands Diep,Haringvliet and the Biesbosch-region. It is the same river where Dave Thorpe caught the Dutch record carp many many years ago. A very large riversystem that makes you feel real tiny.....This is my second year on these rivers,and I must say that it has put a sort of a spell on me I am not catching a lot of fish,but each and every fish I manage to catch overthere is very special to me.

Hopefully I will get to know some nice fishing-colleagues on this forum to share my passion with.

Hi all,

I've taken up fishing again properly this year after a 10 year lay off.

And I must say, I'm enjoying it a whole lot more than I ever have. I'm out there any time that I can .

Previously I was just an ordinary river fisherman, catching anything that would take my bait, and therefore not catching a great deal.

But this year I have achieved some pleasing pb's, biggest carp (16lb), 2 doubles in a day (in fact it was 3, 11lb, 13lb and 16lb) I realise that these aren't big fish compared to what the majority of you folk are catching, but I'm happy, I'm catching and for me that's all that matters.

Anyway, enough of my drivel.

Just go for Shimano. I have been using a pair of the old 4500 aero GT for about 30 years and they have never let me down. If you go used I would suggest you look at the old GTE 8000. Depends what size waters you are fishing.
